Abstract Title: Communicating Drought Relative to Geography & Function

Abstract: The impacts of drought are variable depending on the region and the concerns of the various stakeholders impacted.

The paper will first explain how communication and geography form a social construction perspective and then explore the connection between drought products, people and how this varies across geographic contexts.
